Be like a tree. The tree gives shade even to him who cuts off its boughs.
- Sri Chaitanya
Each of us in our own way can try to spread compassion into people’s hearts. Western civilizations these days place great importance on filling the human ‘brain’ with knowledge, but no one seems to care about filling the human ‘heart’ with compassion.
- Dalai Lama Xiv
I am a deeply religious nonbeliever - this is a somewhat new kind of religion.
- Albert Einstein
Love truth, but pardon error.
You deserve to be called a human being only when you develop good feelings in you. Let your thoughts, words and deeds be suffused with sacred feelings.
- Sathya Sai Baba
The person who understands the dynamics of changing circumstances, lives
his life satisfied in the present. Of course, he keeps an eye on how things are
shaping... As a result, the moment he sees anything ready on a platter, he
immediately grabs it with both hands.
- Deep Trivedi
A lie will easily get you out of a scrape, and yet, strangely and beautifully, rapture possesses you when you have taken the scrape and left out the lie.
- Charles Edward Montague
Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.
- Dalai Lama
One man’s justice is another’s injustice; one man’s beauty, another’s ugliness; one man’s wisdom, another’s folly.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Life doesn't make any sense, and we all pretend it does. Comedy's job is to point out that it doesn't make sense, and that it doesn't make much difference anyway.
